The commission on affairs of minors warned Illia Shyla, a 16-year old participant of a picket against the Russian intervention in Georgia, which had been held near the Russian Embassy on 11 August.

The picket was dispersed with violence. The police used their gear. Mauliuda Atakulava, Illia Shyla, Ivan Shyla and Andrei Tychyna were detained and charged with violation of the rules for holding mass actions. The following day Atakulava was sentenced to 10 days of jail. Last week Andrei Tychyna was fined 875 000 rubles (about $411).
